It seems that some squirrels in South London are addicted to crack cocaine. I know, I know…where the hell did squirrels raise enough cash to purchase crack? They didn’t. It turns out that some people hide their cocaine by burying it in gardens. The tree rats are digging up and eating the stash…and they want more. The article says that some of them become abnormally aggressive while under the influence of the drug.
Oddly, the article says that “Crack squirrels are a recognised problem in America.” Imagine that! I suppose it may be so in Darkest Detroit or the farthest reaches of Washington, D.C. but I don’t believe it is a recognized problem here in the south. That may be a simple matter of life expectancy. Down here we make no attempt to discern the root cause of squirrel terrorism. We simply turn the squirrel off and go about the day.
